Key Techniques

Reiki 

In A Nutshell:

  • cropped-autumn-images.jpgReiki is energy healing. We are made of energy so healing at our energetic level equates to healing imbalances at their Source
  • Reiki relaxes; energetically re-balances; activates the bodies innate healing response; and importantly releases stress, the foundation of many health concerns both large and small, short and long term
  • Reiki can be so powerful and effective because it infuses your chakras and your body, with Universal light energy. 
  • Reiki clears energy blocks in our chakras, leaving recipients feeling more grounded, calm and relaxed after a session.
  • A powerful healing on it’s own, Reiki also enhances the power of, and is complimentary to, other healing approaches

More info:

Reiki can be ‘hands on’ or ‘hands off’ or sent distantly…….. It’s a natural process that enables relaxation and healing by removing blocks to the flow of energy in your body, facilitating balance and support on all levels. It can assist in relieving and reducing pain and enable the release of old energy, patterns, and/or beliefs that no longer serve.  Your body takes exactly what it needs for optimal healing at that time and always works for the recipients highest good. Reiki is a powerful form of energy healing dating back thousands of years to Tibetan Monks.

Stress is commonly understood to be at the basis of much ill health today for both short and long term problems…. ….Medical research has determined that continual stress can block the body’s natural ability to repair, regenerate and protect itself. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75%-95% of all visits to doctors are the results of reaction to stress. Stress has also been found to be a key factor in the development of  long term illness and disease overtime. Reiki releases stress.

Practitioners are attuned to the life force energy vibration meaning they are energetically cleared to become a channel for the universal energy all around us to pass through them to the recipient. The more attuned a practitioner is (Master level being the most) the stronger the energy; the clearer the channel they become; and the more ‘tuned in’ they become to the recipient. 

Note: Reiki is recommended as a minimum of three sessions.

NLP  (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

In A Nutshell:

  • leaves in sunNLP has been used worldwide since the 1970’s providing techniques for changing patterns, habits, beliefs at the subconscious level

  • See below for a non-exhaustive list of some personal challenges NLP can be used for

More Info:

NLP provides techniques for intervening at the subconscious level……. bypassing our defense mechanisms and best attempts to control our own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Far more powerful than goal setting and willpower which are located in the conscious part of the mind, NLP taps into the subconscious part of the mind which drives 90% of how you operate. It enables us to access the underlying subconscious programs containing beliefs and memories. New neurological pathways are created resulting in thoughts and behaviours which better serve you in your life and eliminating old destructive patterns. NLP can take us from where we are…….. to where we want to be without the effort and struggle.

NLP may be best known for changing unwanted habits such as smoking, however NLP is a tool for basically any challenge with a mental component to it whether conscious or unconscious, be it mental, emotional or physical. Any part of our lives where we feel blocked and unable to move forward NLP can give us the means to clear those blocks and move forward in a new way powerfully.

The following non-exhaustive list indicates where NLP can be used…..

  • habits and addictions e.g smoking, alchohol…..
  • fears and phobia’s e.g public speaking, heights, spiders….
  • insominia
  • stress, anxiety, depression

Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping)

In A Nutshell:

  • Tapping is growing worldwide and research is backing it as an easy, effective technique combining Chinese Acupressure and modern Psychology

  • A simple technique to diffuse the ‘charge’ we experience on all levels associated with a past or current negative experience
  • Effective for daily stress through to past trauma, tapping can address negative beliefs, emotional issue’s and physical pain
  • Negative states suppress our immune systems so tapping also re-engages the natural healing ability of the body

More info:

EFT Tapping utilizes the meridian system within the body……. tapping on acupressure points and focusing on a specific issue sends a signal to the amygdala in the brain responsible for emotions, survival instincts, and memory. Perceived threats such as stress or negative responses from others stimulate the amygdala and can create chronic stress. Tapping reprograms your response to these threats… the anger, sadness, or whatever negative emotion you’re experiencing, and sends a signal to the amygdala that you’re safe. While the technique may be new,  it’s based upon practices in Eastern medicine that are 5,000+ years old. 

Tapping is able to work for so many different things ……it enables exploration of the emotional issues that often underlie the problems you’re experiencing. Tapping reaches us at the physiological level, creates a calming sensation neutralising any negative state so we no longer experience it as distressing, painful or damaging.  This helps prevent stressful thoughts from triggering a negative response in the future, making way for more positive, empowering thoughts. 

You are literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power….. by neutralising the negative states that suppress our immune systems at the physiological levelIt allows us to release old programming and stored emotions, as well as current distress. You can improve your feelings about yourself/others, loose limiting beliefs, clear out past trauma and let go of obstacles holding you back. 

Physical pain and disease are highly connected to negative emotions, and Tapping can create long lasting results for a multitude of issues, including:

  • pain relief
  • emotional release/problems
  • weight loss
  • stress
  • depression, resentment, unforgiveness etc
  • addictions, disorders, phobias
  • autoimmune diseases
  • the list goes on and on…………………………………

Whilst not a focus of my practice it is a great tool when this kind of relief and relaxation is called for and can form a valuable part of an overall healing approach.
